whether or not to defund obama care, even if it means shutting down significant portions of the government. good idea, bad idea? >> i think in general it's a good idea. our party is united as far as getting rid of obama care. we recognize the fact that more americans are losing their health care, costs are going up. the problems continue with the imation of obama. what i think we have a robust difference on is the tactic on how to make that happen. some people believe that we can defund it through the continuing resolution process. some people believe that you're not able to do that because of the way the funding is structured in terms of mandatory spending. i think if we can get resolution that it can be done i think most republicans agree that we should defund it. but there's a healthy debate as to what is the most effective way to do it. and that's where the breakdown occurs. everyone wants to get to the same place. it's just how to get there. >> dana, a lot of the tea party people have sort of drawn a line in the sand and said if they don't vote to defund and even tie it to whether it'

at the black liberal establishment, president obama, al sharpton, jesse jackson, leaders of the naacp, their message is about victimization. and this incident as tragic as it is, this incident does not fit into their narrative. so they're going to try to ignore it, pretend it didn't happen. they also tried to ignore the black on black crime that happened, because that highlights the failures of their big government policies in these communiti communities. >> are you saying that unless it's helpful to them politically, sharpton and jack subject and the president it's not helping them politically they're not going to talk about it. >> look at the trayvon martin case, it was made a national news headline on a daily basis. look at the school bus beating in florida. no mention of it except from jesse jackson, he happened to issue a press release just last night. how many phone calls did that take to get that. >> i'm glad you brought that up. we talked about where they were yesterday and jesse jackson put out this tweet that angered a lot of people. praying for the family of chris lane. the

obama is saying we're doing a shot across the bow. for them we're going home. three days we don't want an iraq war. it has none of the effect of a shot across the bow. it is simply a way to assuage the conscience of a president and a lot of people in the west without achieving anything. >> one more challenge. the syrian government requested u.n. inspector teams stay on the ground to investigate the scenario that rebel groups have been using chemical weapons. that could lead to yet another delay. back to you. >>gretchen: syria is the main topic of discussion today and whether or not the president is going to actually make a decision today or not. this is really a serious matter. i think it is interesting to watch how this unfolds with sort of this deliberating with the president. we've known him over the last five and a half years to take time to make decisions, but do you need to be a little bit more definitive when making such an important decision as this. could it have to do with what britain is doing? david cameron called parliament back so they could discuss it there and parliamen

in washington with more on this story. kelly, what is the obama administration and congress doing to address the rising cost of going to college? >> reporter: very good question. the answer is they're dealing with it. the president recently sign ad law that restores lower interest rates for college students who need to get a loan to pay for college. 18 million students will benefit from the law that offers a new, something like $106 billion. a new study from the national center for education statistics shows 71% of all undergraduates received some type of financial aid. 59% received grants. 40% took out student loans. 6% received aid through work study jobs. 4% received veterans benefits and 5% have parents who took out federal direct plus loans. but this law is only temporary. it is linked to the financial markets. so as the economy improves, interest rates could rise which raises the cost for students. education secretary arne duncan said increasing federal student aid alone will not control the cost of college. gregg? gregg: so, kelly, what other proposals or plans will the president be o

are some examples of things that the president has done. we will start with obama irca. you know, he has made some of these mandates delayed because they didn't think that they could work out the kinks in time for october 1st. so, without the authorization of congress, he has done many of these things that we'll outline for you. >> so he has changed the healthcare law without congressional approval, that is, of course, suspending the penalties for corporations that don't play along. he has ordered new cell phone taxes to pay for pet program installing wi-fi in schools. >> he is overruling congress on the drug war sentencing. we heard from attorney general eric holder on that. so changing the sentencing for the amount of drugs seized during operations. those go against laws that are already on the books. >> alisyn: then you know he did the dream act where he basically gave amnesty to young, illegal immigrants who were brought here through no fault of their own before that they were 18 years old, so he did that through the dream act. you any, lots of people are saying he is doing an end ru

is trying to make itself look good when it put out the terror kill list, it made president obama look like he was strong on terror because it was before the election because there was much criticism about him not being strong. i think this is a tiny bit different. we're in the middle of a huge potential imminent attack and i don't know if i'm ready to criticize it from a political point of view yet. >> should the president say we have your phone numbers, jerks? >>steve: remember last week all the talk was about phony substantials and the n.s.a. and the i.r.s. and suddenly we get this alert that something could be happening in the arab world somewhere toward western interests, and it is pro-administration. we've heard this a million times. judge, i'm with you on this. it does look like -- >>gretchen: what if something huge does happen? i think we should keep our eye on the prize. >>steve: just that they would reveal such detail. they burned a source and a method, and that's the problem. they could still say be careful if you're in these areas. but to be so specific to make it look like the

minutes past. talk about part-time america. president obama hitting the road for yet another speech on the economy. while last week's jobs numbers show slight increase in hiring, most of those jobs are not full-time gigs. new numbers from the labor department tell the story of the of 980,000 new jobs added to the economy this year, 70% of those were part-time work. stuart varney, host of "varney & company" on the fox business network. my guest now. stuart, good morning to you. part-time america, is this the way we're headed? >> remember this is the government's own numbers used from the bureau of labor statistics quoting the household survey. this is where the government asks real people, about 3,000 on a regular basis what are you earning, where do you work, how do you work, what are you spending your money on? that is the household survey. that's where these numbers come from. that is what making the numb members so real because it is real people are being asked the questions. as you say, bill, 70% of the jobs created this calendar year, part-time. we have record 28.2 million part
